Two months! TWO WHOLE MONTHS! That’s how long it has been since the last DragonFUZE Comics update. Well, in the real world things have been hectic and this has kept the team from forging ahead on Tikki’s Giant. But, rest assured, pages are still coming in and Andrew has completed six pages so far, so we are almost one third of the way through issue #1.

So here’s how the project shapes up so far: both scripts are done, all character concepts are done, both issues of the book are laid out, covers are drawn and we have pencilled pages from issue #1 in the bag – not a bad tally for 8 months work. PHEW! So, yes there is still a long way to go, but we are well on the way.

Pages! Pages! I love pages! Andrew has started sending through fully drawn pages and sneak peeks and I have to say that I am really excited to see this book coming together. We are 6 months into the production process, I can’t believe it has been that long, and now we have a comic book, the first DragonFUZE Comics comic book, coming together – awesome!

It’s all so exciting. Having written the story some time ago I feel like I am re-discovering the tale each time I see more of Andrew’s art work. Every time I see Andrew’s work I think about my plans for the book and try to decide on self publishing or submitting the book to an indy publisher. I think I will do both! I will self publish a small run and then submit the book; I still have a few contacts in the world of comics so I will see if they bear any fruit. I am really excited to share this story with as many people as possible.

Tonight I have been using a Mac program called Comic Life to test whether I can use this to letter our upcoming book Tikki’s Giant. Here is a promo image I put together, let me know what you think.

Time for another quick update:

Yesterday I was contacted by a fantastic colorist who really enjoys Andrew’s character designs; it’s great to see Tikki and Malinki generating some interest and connecting with comics fans way before the book is out there.

So, stay tuned to the DragonFUZE Comics site and be on the lookout for colored up versions of Andrew’s designs for Tikki and Malinki. We are planning to possibly use these colored up pics as promotional/ teaser images.

The colored images will debut here soon!

I caught up with Andrew today to talk all things Tikki’s Giant. I didn’t have a lot of time as we met in the middle of the work day, but I did get a peek into Andrew’s interpretation of Tikki’s world and the script for the book. Andrew has finished the layouts for all of issue #1. He came along with a portfolio full of layout pics, but also of concept sketches for the wondrous environments of the book including Terellheim village, Kimban’s cottage, Lothos Keep and the Trollhaunt Mountains. The layouts and environments look great; Andrew ‘gets’ what I am trying to convey with this story. There are some particularly chaotic scenes in #1 and the layouts show that Andrew has a handle on the pacing of those scenes. Things are really moving now on #1.

We also had a brief chance to talk about some of the marketing ideas I have for the book and about some of my plans for the book’s production. While there is a lot of work going on now for Tikki’s Giant, I am still acutely aware of how much needs to be done to get the book finished , online and printed. I am so convinced of the quality of Andrew’s pencils that I want to do this book without inks, so that will take one step out of the creative process and buy us some time.

I am still aiming for a 2010 release on this series. More news soon.
